As I posted on the Guardian's website:
>> Can anything new be written about religion?
Of course it can. Just as new novels, songs and TV shows are invented all the time, new religions can be invented. Because that's what all religion is: invented. There is no "god", no "revealed word", all are equally false. Claims of them are fabricated by people. The only difference is when they were invented.
All religions are extremist ideologies, just like their brethren communism, fascism, nazism, racism and many others. The more extreme they are, the more violent they are in search of the unholy trinity: money, sex, and power. As Bertrand Russell once noted, christianity and communism hate each other so much because they are so similar.
The targets of atheism (or new atheism, or atheism+ or whatever label you want to use) have never changed. The targets are the ignorance and certainty of ideology. Atheism is not an ideology, it is an absence of ideology.

Quote article, "Atheists have a tendency to bundle up all expressions of religion in the same ugly blanket before throwing it off a cliff."
No, religion = superstition
It really isn't complicated.

It isn't about "religion", it's about a RELATIONSHIP with a 2,000-year-old virgin carpenter who was his own father, who impregnated his own mother with himself so as to sacrifice himself to himself.
It isn't about "religion", it's about a RELATIONSHIP with a triune God that the FAKE-ass Christoholics who post here are too embarrassed to recognize as Yahwehjesuspigeon.
When you have a personal relationship with Yahwehjesuspigeon, new things can always be written about your daily walk with Yahwehjesuspigeon.
For example, you might be at Home Depot buyin' nail guns fer a group viewin' of Mel Gibson's B-grade slasher flick, The Smashin' of the Christ, and suddenly Yahwehjesuspigeon whispers somethin' into yer ear like, "Sing praises to me on aisle 7, near the PVC pipes". You obey Yahwehjesuspigeon's low contralto voice, inside yer head, and you sing until the store manager calls the police. You go home with a fat fine for disorderly conduct but you pleased Yahwehjesuspigeon. This is something "new" to be written about yer personal relationship with Yahwehjesuspigeon.
